Before you all tuck into your favorite Turkey-day delights, we wanted to express our gratitude to you, dear readers, with a holiday edition of What Was She Wearing: Answers! As per tradition, today's feature is stuffed to the brim with a veritable cornucopia of stylish solutions for all of your clothing-centric questions. So before you begin to baste the bird or prep for a Black Friday morning-after shopping extravaganza, make sure you pull up a chair and dig in to this info-packed story!
While attending the opening of Undrest shop in West Hollywood earlier this month, Whitney Port showed off a tricky combination of plaid and stripes when she mixed a Wayne Plaid Jacket from their S/S 08 collection-try Smythe's Hunting Jacket ($630)-and T by Alexander Wang's Striped Baggy Shirt ($118). Though the latter may be almost out of stock everywhere (the always in-demand Alexander Wang has another hit on his hands), we quite like his Striped Baggy Boat Neck Top ($98) as a chic layering alternative. Port balanced the rest of her outfit with black accents, including noir Whyred tights and spiky Christian Louboutin's Pigalle 120 Heels ($995, 212.255.1910)-try Aldo's Litten Heels ($80) for a similarly killer shoe selection. Than you just have to pick up a pale quilted bag like Port's Chanel Jumbo Classic Flap Bag ($2650, 212.334.0055) or Eric Javitz' Mini Quilt Leather Satchel ($425) to add a final dash of design to your darling ensemble.
Though Alexa Chung wasn't the only one rushing to the theatre to see New Moon, her fashion choices certainly stood out from the pack. Chung, seen here at the premiere of the latest installment of the Twilight Saga, looked lovely in a midnight blue Fancy Dress ($935) by Katy Rodriguez. She's inspired us to keep our eyes peeled for a nice navy festive frock for any upcoming holiday parties, like Opening Ceremony's Lantern Dress ($440), which has flirty lace paneling and fashion-forward voluminous shape. Make sure to pair your party-ready piece with opaque tights and vertiginous heels, such as Chung's Marni platform sandals from the F/W 08 collection. Just add a seasonally chic leopard accent, like Marc by Marc Jacobs Derby Bag ($266) purse, and you'll be an outfit all-star ASAP!
Model du monde Erin Wasson rocked her signature insouciant style while attending a Toms shoe collection preview at Bergdorf Goodman last week. While her show-stopping Rick Owens men's fur-collared coat is from a past season and no longer available, be sure to check out their for-the-guys Classic Motorcycle Jacket ($2924, 212.627.7222) or Topman's Black Leather Biker Jacket ($250) for a similarly tough outerwear option. Wasson wisely kept the rest of her outfit monochromatic and muted via J Brand's 7/8th Skinny Jeans ($185) and her own Erin Wasson x RVCA Love to Live T ($56). Yet we love how she added a little extra élan with a gem-colored Prada pouch, Dolce & Gabbana's Suede Wedge Heels ($550, 310.888.8701), and vintage felt fedora. Keep your top toasty with Topshop's Down Brim Hat ($44) for a fashionable alternative.
The always-impeccable Chloë Sevigny added a little geek to her chic when she was spotted exiting the Henry Fonda theatre in Los Angeles after a Devo concert a few weeks ago. Though her luxurious silk pants and Oversized Cashmere Sweater ($1045, 212.717.8220)-both by Chloé-are certainly enviable, you were particularly drawn to Sevigny's own designs from her Opening Ceremony collection: specifically the Multi Buckle Suede Wedge Booties ($625) and Baggy Button Down ($380). If you'd like to achieve her quirky and cool look for less, make sure to try Jeffrey Campbell's Potion Ankle Boots ($168), Gemma's Madison Blouse ($158), and Banana Republic's Boyfriend Cardigan ($80). Finally, don't forget a smart pair of specs-Sevigny's are from Fabulous Fanny in the East Village, but we certainly recommend that you check out these Torrid Two-Tone Clear Glasses ($15) too-to get that hot-for-teacher final touch.
